Sitting along the edge of the state’s eastern border, the Hastings real estate market is a popular market for today’s home buyer. There are about 20,000 residents that call Hastings home and it offers a variety of outdoor opportunities for families and friends. Our family enjoys going down to the nearby Vermillion River on the weekend afternoons where we enjoy the scenery and the various recreational activities like swimming, picnics and more. We especially enjoy the waterfall that is located along the lake for its beauty and serene nature.
In addition to the various recreational opportunities, education is very important to us. That’s why we appreciate the quality education our kids receive at the Hastings schools. Our kids have attended several of the area schools, including Hastings Middle School, Hastings High School, Kennedy Elementary School and others. There is an average of 18 students to each teacher which gives them ample opportunity for receiving one on one help when they need it.
